The decrease in students served has been proportionally smaller than the
decrease in staff. (The ratio of full-time equivalent staff to students
was 1:30 in school year 1982-83 compared to 1:27 in 1979-80*) Also, the
decrease was proportionally smaller for the nonpublic students served
than for the public school students served.

While resources declined annually between school years 1979-80 and 1982-
83, program funding increased significantly since then. It is likely
that student participation and staffing have also increased since
school year 1982-83, though such information is not currently available.

Table 2 shows percentage changes in funding, students, and staff from
school years 1979-80 through 1984-85.
